At what age do infants learn to bang two blocks together?

6 months: Infants generally start to grasp objects around 5 months of age, and often pass them back and forth between their hands around 5.5 months. Keep in mind that some kids are a little early and some kids are a little late. Plus or minus 1 month or so is still appropriate.

Has sudden infant death syndrome in survivors been linked to learning disabilities?

Has sudden infant death syndrome in survivors been linked to learning disabilities?

SIDS: I would say this is an alte, or an apparent life threatening event vs. Surviving sids. It is reasonable to say if your brain was without oxygen for a significant amount of time than it is possible that later there could be a ld. It could be hard to prove on a case by case basis the exact cause of a ld.

Can head CT scans in an infant cause radiation and learning disabilities?

Can head CT scans in an infant cause radiation and learning disabilities?

Not exactly: A ct is by definition 'radiation', since it is a series of xrays computer reconstructed as sliced pictures of body tissues. It doesn't cause radiation but exposes the person to radiation. Modern ones may expose one to an amount similar to a transcontinental flight over the usa. Repeat exposure is a current topic of concern, but no specific learning disorder has been identified as connected to this.

Side effects of CT scan for preemie infant include radiation and learning disabilities?

Side effects of CT scan for preemie infant include radiation and learning disabilities?

Doubt connection: Any learning disabilities suffered by a premi that survives most likely represent factors that precipitated premature delivery & the need for resuscitation & intensive care, not the ct scan. Last year my patient, "littlest angel" (14oz @ birth) graduated from the honors program at baylor in 3 yrs. It didn't slow her down. She never got real tall but she is quite a survivor.

11month old baby fell backwards wyl standing on a baby playmat bec we r in fun&learn childrens ground. Cried a bithe seems fine but im worid. Wat id do?

Closed Head Inhury: Not to worry. As long as there is no vomiting, continuous cry, loss of consciousness, rolling of eyeballs, jerky movements, unequal pupil size, he will be fine. Can put cold compress at the site of hit. Watch him for 24 hours, if any of these sign, check with his/her pediatrician.

When will my baby learn to walk?

When will my baby learn to walk?

12 to 15 months: Children want to check out their world starting around 6 months, and by 9 months are able to crawl around. By 12 months, that just doesn't cut it, and they pull up on objects and cruise. We expect babies to walk between 12 and 15 months, though of course some will walk by 9 or 10 months, and some won't by 15 mo. A lot depends on the drive and gross development of the child.

When will my baby learn to climb stairs?

When will my baby learn to climb stairs?

Once mobile: Children are natural explorers and are fast. If you have stairs gate them off to prevent your child from climbing when you are not watching and with him. Most children can climb up pretty easily but have trouble descending. They need constant supervision to avoid a fall. Anytime after a child learns to walk they may try.....Some before. Children are surprising.

My two months old infant has flaky scales on her scalp. Is this normal?

My two months old infant has flaky scales on her scalp. Is this normal?

Yes: This sounds like cradle cap or scalp seborrhea, which is very common in infants. You can put baby oil on the area 1/2 hour prior to shampooing and then shampoo with a baby shampoo. That may loosen the scales for her. This usually goes away after a couple of months even without treatment.

My husband said TV's good for baby to learn n he won't disturb me when doing housework. He said my son isn't TV person, no harm to turn on. Is it true?

TV/ video viewing: Has been shown in reputable studies to cause delays in language development of children under age 2. The American Academy of Pediatrics' http://www. Healthychildren. Org/English/Pages/default. Aspx or its Healthy Children app has its recommendations for no TV/video/media viewing till age 2, after which all screen time should be limited to a maximum of 2 hours/day. I hope this convinces your hubby.

How can I help my baby learn to talk?

How can I help my baby learn to talk?

Talk, read, play: Babies who hear more spoken words and have more interactive time with adults and other children generally learn to talk earlier and have better language skills. Television does the opposite-- more tv time, even supposedly "educational" tv-- slows language development. Talk and play with your baby, and turn off the tv.
